Nick Cooper

I grew up in Central Minnesota, learning to enjoy all of what Minnesota has to offer - whether it be enjoying a good hot dish, heading into the great outdoors, or being let down by the Twins, Vikings, T-Wolves, and Wild (I can't help it, I'm a fan). I moved to Bemidji to attend Bemidji State University and get a degree in Mass Communications (I know, who goes to a 4-year school to get into radio, right?). Fast forward a few years and a couple jobs later, and here I am, doing what I love in the beautiful Duluth/Superior area!
